The colour professionals Pantone have announced their colour forecast for 2013 and this year’s colour trend is emerald. The executive director of Pantone Colour Leatrice Eiseman explains that “The most abundant hue in nature, the human eye sees more green than any other colour, this powerful and universally-appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.”

This photo of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, (below) wearing a Mulberry dress in emerald back in October 2012 probably influenced the decision to name 2013 as the emerald year. And no doubt the colour won’t be limited to fashion – Pantone influences accessories, interior design, cosmetics and even graphics, so you can expect to see a tinge of green everywhere you look throughout the year.

Still, I like these emerald pieces that Marks & Spencer, Missguided and La Redoute have added to their spring/summer collections, and I’ll certainly whipping out my old favourite emerald eye shadow and sparkly Pin Up Couture high heels (above) to get into the spirit of 2013!
